Chapter 42 Played

  • Manager Lu looked perplexed. He kept shaking his head at me, “Zhang Chao, you’re a good man, a good hearted and talented man, but I can’t afford to keep you around anymore. I really do thank you for that contract with Juen that you salvaged, but I really need to fire you. Otherwise I won’t have a company to run anymore.”
  • “What!?” Lin Fang’s desperation overcame her usual fear of contact with people. She grabbed Manager Lu’s wrist and asked, “Why!?”
  • “You don’t know this, but this morning, someone from Juen called and told us that, if I don’t fire you, they’ll make it certain that my company won’t last before this Sunday comes. And then, after that, all of the company’s bank accounts were frozen, and my personal account too. Calling the cab to come here to tell you this just cost me the last bit of cash that I still had. Zhang Chao, I’m a man of my words, really, I tried, but Juen really isn’t someone that I can afford to mess with. I panicked so much that I seriously considered jumping out of my office window and give myself a quick one. I thought I’d wait for you to come to the company, but you didn’t show up, so I had no choice but to come for you.”
  • Lin Fang was stressed to the point of tears, “Then what about me?”
  • “Well, uhh, they didn’t say anything about you. They only mentioned Zhang Chao.”
  • “Zhang Chao, say something. What should we do!?”
